good job. >> chris: and we still have 44 days and four debates to go until election day. that is it for today. have a great week and we'll see you next fox news sunday. >> searching for survivors. and bodies after a natural disaster atop one of the tallest places everywhere and governor romney kicking off a campaign swing for the presidential election, as the nominees fast approach the first of three debates. what do voters want to hear? i'm harris falkner, this is the fox report. >> . >> five days three tossups,
4:01pm
and three that went for president obama four years ago and a deadline now set, fed up with terrorists, everyday rib yeah and the government fighting back. and how the murder of four americans are prompting a dramatic new crackdown against rogue militias. also, this truck and the driver dangling over the edge. ♪ fox news is america's election headquarters and tonight, governor mitt romney getting ready to hold a rally in the key swing state of of colorado. colorado's 9 electoral votes crucial if the governor hopes to win in november. and part of a tour this week and ten days away from the first presidential debate. our steve centanni following the story for us tonight in washington. >> and mitt romney is diving
4:02pm
into a flurry of battle ground, 9 in colorado and three day stop in ohio and then on to virginia. carried by president obama four years ago. the candidates forging ahead even though the republicans say the campaign needs a turn around. and it it does not need a turn ard. and the g.o.p. chairman over the leaked video last week, he sees a silver lining. >> i think we can look back at last week as a campaign in a couple months and say this was the defining week in both campaigns, where i think both campaigns are crystallizing around a central theme, which is going to be what kind of future do we want for our kids and grandkids. >> and meantime, president obama is planning his own trip to ohio later on in the week after visiting the u.n. tomorrow and tuesday.
4:03pm
and these campaign stops and swing states come just ten days ahead of the first presidential debate, and today, the president's team playing the expectations game, giving romney the edge in those debates. >> and mitt romney, i think, has an advantage because he's been through 20 of these debates in the primaries over the last year. and he even bragged that he was declared the winner in 16 of those debates and i so, i think in that sense, having been through this much more recently than president obama, i think he starts with an advantage. >> and the polls show obama leading by a few points in many of the swing states though many are within the margin of error and the race could tighten further, harris. >> and now let's go to libya and the terror attack on the u.s. consulate that killed four americans. new details coming out showing the terrorists behind the assault may have known a lot p and here is what we know so far. the attack appears to have been coordinated well in advance and likely carried out
4:04pm
as part after joint operation between two groups, the fbi, looking into whether it was an inside job, and working now to find out just how much the terrorists really knew about our consulate and who was in there at the time of the hit. chief intelligence correspondent catherine herridge. >> on the sunday talk shows ahead of the house intelligence committee saying the terrorists seemed to know more than the consulate. >> and there is some indication they may have known that the ambassador was there or in the area at the time of the attack, but 9/11 is probably more important to that equation than even the the be ambassador. >> as for the libyan security forces melted away when the attack unfolded, an intelligence source on the ground in libya telling that 100 militants attacked the consulate adding one thing for sure, the 17th brigade was nowhere to be found and the americans were left on their own in the assault on the stevens' compound and the evidence points to a joint
4:05pm
oranges between the al-qaeda affiliate in north african and ansar al sharia. and it supports the establishment of an islam state. as for the catalyst, the head of the house intelligence committee saying there's no strong evidence the amateurish video clip on youtube prompted the benghazi assault. last monday fox news was first to report there was no sizable demonstration at the consulate when the attack unfolded. it was not a demonstration that led out of control that led to the attack. the chairman. house committee state that had today. >> i see no information showing there was a protest going on as you've seen around any other embassy. it was clearly designed to be an attack. >> the washington in not commenting, but agents are on the ground in libya. >> let's stay with libya just a moment, something maybe two people could have seen coming, a slip there in the violence,
4:06pm
now it's aimed at the extremists behind the terror attack that killed our ambassador and other three americans, libya's president, ordered all rogue, unregistered militias to disband by tuesday. and civilian protesters angry over the attack on the u.s. consulate stormed the militia compound and set fire to some of the buildings and remember, we showed you that on fox report last night. we're told if the militias do not comply with the libyan president's order, the libyan army will use force to take them out. our greg palkot is in libya streaming live now from the the capital city of tripoli. greg, how real is this militia crackdown and how significant? >> harris, so far it seems to be working and authorities tell us here in tripoli, for example, today authorities, security forces round out the rogue militia from one base and comes back to the dramatic scenes we've been seeing earlier this week from the eastern libyan city of benghazi and storming the compounds here and this is
4:07pm
what many people have wanted after helping to topple gaddafi last year, and some of these militants, some of these islamic have stayed in power and capped off the force with attack on the u.s. consulate and some have remained and skeptical about the and think it might be a trick by the militants and maybe a tactical retreat. >> how has it had an impact on the consulate. >> the fallout could be good for the investigation into the killing, the word we're getting tonight from benghazi, things are calm there and authorities are in control. the fbi team, which is come into this country, in tripoli, this might now allow them to get over to benghazi and the crime scene. still, it remains that suspects might simply scatter. for example, fox news quoting intelligence sources last
4:08pm
week, a militant with al-qaeda ties, could have played a major role in the killing of the ambassador. and the head of a militia in one eastern libyan city, that militia disbanded this weekend and militia members have fled. >> harris: so, greg, we know how the libyan citizens are expressing how they feel about the militias, what is their opinion of us, the americans in their country? >> well, we heard in that rally on friday, in benghazi, and led to the storm of the compound some real support for american sorrow for the loss of the ambassador and i have heard that and we have he heard that on the street from the libyans in the past couple of days. the problem is, what people are watching is, if and when the u.s. decides possibly to take some more aggressive action in this country against those thought to be responsible for the killing of ambassador stevens and others, there could be some fallout from that. some flashback from that, back to you, harris.
4:09pm
>> more to come on this, greg palkot on the job for us in that country, libya, greg, thank you very much. >> now with the the countdown back in this country to election day on, a new push is coming from those who take politics to the faithful why this particular move could lead hundreds of pastors to showdowns with the fed. also, republican running mate romney and congressman ryan reunited for a bus tour for a swing across one of the prized swing states. what would it take to win there, a state that went for president obama in 2008, the man who ran president reagan's reelection campaign is with us shortly. stay close. ♪ [ male announcer ] introducing a stunning work of technology.

>> americans love to shop. consumer spending makes up a whop two-thirds of our economy and that's why wall street will be watching closely this week. when the latest consumer spending numbers are released, it's just one of several important indications due out this week that could provide a valuable look at health, the true health of the economy and it could also shake up your 401(k). senior business correspondent and anchor of bulls and bears, brenda buttner has more. >> harris, what's the health of the economy this week? we find out by looking at you. reports on your confidence and what you are doing with your wallet are the big numbers out. really big. >> and consumer spending makes up two-thirds of all economic activity. so what you take out of your pocket terms how fast the economy will take off. most predictions are, you're still cautious and not all that confident, and consumer spending forecasts predict americans likely increase purchases by about 1/2 a percent in august.
4:14pm
now, normally it's not a horrible number, but the headline high is a darker picture. much of that was publicly spent at the pump and gas prices spiked last month and that kind of spending doesn't do much for the economy. and also spending is expected to outpace income growth, as it has for some time. so you're probably taking the extra bucks out of savings. going deeper in debt. and wall street is certainly watching all of this. the bull taking a bit after breather last week, the broad market the one most likely in your 401(k), fell. reports on housing could help give the bulls a boost. the prices expected to bounce off the the bottom and sales could be up, too. all of which makes you feel a little wealthier. but, we likely need more than a floor on the housing market to keep the markets in rally mode, as uncertainty goes up with the election drawing near. harris, back to you. >> harris: brenda, thank you very much. some 1,000 pastors nationwide are preparing to deliver a sermon the irs may not want to hear. they're trying to draw

4:31pm
doesn't win virginia or florida the likelihood of getting to 270 is very difficult. >> harris: let's talk about the mood among the electorate in some of the states. 7 of 11 key states, the unemployment rate went up in the last month. didn't see at that widely reported, we had it here on the fox report. how much trouble could that spell for the current president? >> it could cause a lot of trouble. it could cause a lot of trouble, particularly we have one more monthly numbers before the election and if those are severe as they were last month, it reminds people of that failure on that economic front. you know, i think that romney's going to try to make this campaign about leadership, and who can lead the economy back to a place to create jobs, and certainly, you've got a lot of uncertainty in the foreign policy arena that obviously you don't want to sit and second guess the president every day, only need one president at a time, but needless to say still has effect. >> for those of us keeping score and i am one of them, over the past week alone. mr. romney attended five

4:33pm
>> you basically almost don't see a campaign. the only part of the campaign you see is what you watch on fox news or something else. >> harris: is it still important for whom you vote? >> absolutely, it's critical who you vote for, there are senate races and gubernatorial races and congressional races. unfortunately we're down to a point where it's eight or nine states that matter in the presidential, the rest are pretty much decided one way or the other and one more thing, we begin this week where we had the early voting. and literally, 30% or a third of all people who vote, will vote early or absentee battle. critical. >> and some will vote before the debate or won't see the final ads or on the trail. instead of old days make it to election day and every effort get your vote on election day, today, a third of the vote have already voted. >> harris: and what advantage could governor romney have in terms of that. >> in one sense, i don't think there's a great advantage to his side.
4:34pm

4:35pm

>> governor romney's campaign is landing in denver, colorado and our chief political correspondent carl cameron with that campaign and carl, the governor went back to brief reporters on the plane which is pretty rare. what did he say? >> oh, every once in a while. this is an opportunity for him to come back before the debate coming up. governor romney and senator rob portman his debate sparring partner. mr. portman talked a little about ohio, but romney on camera and-- (inaudible) the auto industry whether it's on taxes or social issues, what he, the president saying about my position is simply untrue. mr. romney says the president falsely accuses him of wanting the auto industry to be liquidated and he says nothing further from the truth. and romney says that
4:50pm
inaccurate, on the social issues he was referring to mr. romney said the president has cast him as oppose today owe borings even in incest and life of the mother and says it's wrong accusing the president of trying to school voters to thinking that romney's belief and we asked romney about his trailing in a whole number of battle ground states lightly and he says polls are likely to change and go up and down and his answer about whether or not he's campaigning in-- he's carefully on the debate ten days from now and he's in denver tonight where the debate will happen a week and a half from now, as they put an awful lot on it. they think that the debate could be absolute critical moment of this campaign and an opportunity not only for romney to perhaps get off back on offense, but regain some momentum. sole the debate for four straight weeks until october
4:51pm
and three presidential and one vice-presidential debates, harris. >> harris: and you know, you're talking about the intenseity ahead of the debates. i was speaking with ed rollins earlier on the fox report hour and asked him about the the fact that the labor department says that the unemployment rate in deswing states have gone up and and any indication how much the economy will be a part of what the governor says at the rally and getting a taste of what he'll be talking about in the debates as well. >> oh, sure, he's fleshing out a more comprehensive approach in the campaign, it will be focused on jobs and the economy and obama record, but mr. romney is trying to take a more broad approach and more policy and some other issues and essentially make the argument to vote to reelect mr. obama is a vote for the status quo. we don't need four more years, the last four years, and reference the president has not fully realized hope and
4:52pm
changed that he promised, could not be in mr. obama's own words in washington. and mr. romney is marrying that with the inability to get the job done in the nation's capital and the argument that he want today do 14 years ago redistributing the wealth. >> harris: i talked about the schedule earlier on fox report, that governor romney had. the public events five in the past week alone, three rallies and now of course with tonight in colorado, and some fundraisers, tell me a little about what tonight will have on the schedule for people who are attending? >> well, colorado a battle ground state and mr. romney targeted in recent months as one of the ones he'd like to win and colorakohl president ob care anied 2000-- carried in 2008. and first trip to colorado in seven weeks, a long time to be
4:53pm
abse absent, and one targeted victory in. and this is part of sort of pick up the pace a little bit. the tempo of the race, by the fund raising. and romney first republican candidate had to raise cash during the presidential election is richard nixon and president obama is the first incumbent president to essentially blow off-- the first candidate to do it during 2008 and why romney spent little time on the campaign trail raising the money and run the ads. and that mr. romney suggested... won't start spending money until campaigning the money he's raising for. >> i had red 6 million dollar at one event. and we don't call him campaign carl for nothing, getting off

why does my mouth feel dryer than i remember it to be? there are more people taking more medication, so we see people suffering from dry mouth more so. we may see more cavities, bad breath, oral irritation. a dry mouth sufferer doesn't have to suffer. i would recommend biotene. the enzymes in biotene products help supplement enzymes that are naturally in saliva. biotene helps moisten those areas that have become dry. those that are suffering can certainly benefit from biotene.
